Arizona Democrat Watches His Big-Government Policies Make a Bad Economy Worse as He Refuses to #stopthetaxhike
WASHINGTON --- Ron Barber and his party in the House will have to face the music after Vice President Joe Biden admitted at a campaign rally yesterday that the middle class has ‘been buried the last four years.’ Thanks to Barber's efforts to crush small business owners and families with more taxes, the Arizona economy continues to be plagued with anemic economic growth and a bleak outlook for the future (Roll Call #8, 8/1/2012).
"The cat’s out of the bag now that even the vice president conceded that his party’s own policies have buried the middle class,” said NRCC Communications Director Paul Lindsay."Biden’s right, and now is no time for Washington Democrats like Ron Barber to pursue job-killing tax hikes for Arizona families and job creators.”
Thanks to Ron Barber's vote, the average Arizona families’ tax increase will be $3,341 in 2013. (“The Effects of Taxmadeggon,” The Heritage Foundation, 6/2012)
Vice President Biden said that the middle class has been ‘buried’ during Obama’s tenure:
"’This is deadly earnest. How they can justify ... raising taxes on the middle class that has been buried the last four years?’ [said Biden].” (Patricia Zengerle,"Biden: U.S. Middle Class ‘Buried the Last Four Years,’” Reuters, 10/2/2012)
